|Drafting songs in 2006, Volkan began germinating what would become She Past Away in 2009 and released the digital-only debut EP “Kasvetli Kutlama” (“Gloomy Celebration”) in 2010. 2012 saw the release of Belirdi Gece (“The Night Emerged”) and almost immediately, She Past Away earned praised in numerous reviews, filled clubs across the world and, on the success of this album, gained a legendary status in the contemporary Dark Wave, Gothic and Post-Punk scene. The success of the debut was followed by Narin Yalnızlık in 2015 on which the band captured a feeling of delicate loneliness.
“For those who wonder, the misspelling of our band name was intentional,” laughs Doruk. “We like to keep this a secret.” Whether their secret stays that way remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure. Turkey’s best kept secret won’t be.
She Past Away is Volkan Caner and Doruk Ozturkcan. DISKO ANKSIYETE will be released on May 31, 2019 via Metropolis Records.
